How to create alerts in Grafana with imported dashboard and multiple servers?

alerting

#1

Hello, in my setup I have multiple servers which I want to monitor and create alerts for. I imported an already existing dashboard (Host Overview - 554) to monitor the data.
Now I want to create alerts with different rules for each server. When I tried to create an alert I received an error saying: Template variables are not supported in alert queries . After looking a little deeper I came to the conclusion that this error is because I use an imported dashboard and the all queries have templates in it.
Is there a work around I can use? What solution should I implement? I have 11 different servers, I don’t think that creating a different dashboard for each server is the correct way to solve this problem.
Any suggestions?

The only option is to create a query that returns many time series (use wildcard instead of a template variable)
